An interlaced pentagram, this is known variously as the "Cinquefoil Knot", after certain herbs and shrubs of the rose family which have 5-lobed leaves and 5-petaled flowers (see e.g. ), as the "Pentafoil Knot" (visit Bert Jagers' pentafoil page), as the "Double Overhand Knot", as 5_1, or finally as the torus knot T(5,2).  As impossible object ("Penrose" pentagram)  Folded ribbon which is single-sided (more complex version of Möbius Strip).  Alternate pentagram of intersecting circles.  Partial view of US bicentennial logo on a shirt seen in Lisboa  Non-prime knot with two 5_1 configurations on a closed loop.  Sum of two 5_1s, Vienna, orthodox church
